Opus 6 No 4 Mazurka by Frederic Chopin

Opus 6 No 4 Mazurka by Frederic Chopin (1810-1849)

Frederic Chopin
Frédéric François Chopin was a Polish composer, virtuoso pianist, and music teacher of French–Polish parentage. A great masters of Romantic music and has been called “the poet of the piano”. He supported himself as a composer and piano teacher, giving few public performances. For most of his life, Chopin suffered from poor health; he died in Paris in 1849 at the age of 39.

Brief and catchy, this apparent trifle has some lovely voice-leading subtleties which are given careful attention in the fingering. The occassional slight stretch of the left hand is worth the momentary effort for the resultant legato.
